Danny Kemp.

For those that have read my previous articles and enjoyed them, I thank you for sharing that same enjoyment that I experienced when penning them to this site. For those that searched them to find a salvation of one kind or another, then I offer an apology. They were not written by a philosopher or an academic scholar but simply by me, a man with few qualifications but a love of life, and all those who treat it as precious as I.

I have, as a highly educated General Practitioner of Medicine once told me, less life to live than all ready lived. I genuinely believe that information had not been gleaned by him from any lecture he may have undergone at Medical School or the symptoms that I displayed, but from something we all have; Common Sense.

Why do we waste what is common to us all?

Could the answer lay, there, in the words themselves? If that innate quality was called Rare Sense or Unsustainable Sense would it be managed and cared for differently or perish the thought, listened and adhered to more often?

This diverse race of ours, is separated from the animal bred by its ability to think and reason, question and explain our decisions coherently, yet we still use force of one kind or another to press our selfish case, when individual so-called values out-weigh those of the vast majority.

Do most of us want war and conflict? No, then why are they so many? Do any of us want worries or insecurities?

When we all reach the end of the line of life, one thing is sure and irrefutable; we can no longer influence those left behind unless we have laid a foundation before we part. As single entities we live such a short time but as a race have survived for thousands, of years. What, I must ask, have the collected intellects of man done to enhance what is common to us all? Are the so many material things that man has created, superior to the damage that has been caused in our stride towards…..this quality of life. Is that the measure of our success?

Where would we all be without the gun and the power that gives? Or the self conviction that we are right, and that those we do not understand, or willing to listen to, are wrong?

This life, this World is common to us all, let us use it well and leave it as a better place for those that follow.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
